Every 3 months, LU and NR meet to coordinate planned closures and a joint programme is in place ' which currently looks ahead to 2008. Of course, where a substantial programme of closures is needed for specific events, LU and NR meet on a more frequent basis. In addition, LU and NR meet jointly with stakeholders such as Wembley Stadium and Twickenham Stadium, to coordinate closures around major events at these venues.
